Having successfully defended her client Danny Lambros against a charge of libel, Alicia finds herself arguing the case all over again in a London court via video conference. The onus of proof is reversed in English & Welsh courts and Alicia must now find a way to prove the claims in Danny's book are true. She gets help from Will and a British solicitor, Timothy Ash Bannon. Will meanwhile is surprised when the new State's Attorney, Alicia's husband Peter, invites the firm to bid on $20 million in business. There's a catch however: because of the firm's dealings with drug dealer Lamond Bishop, Peter wants them to voluntarily submit to a tax audit to show their funds aren't tainted. Will thinks it's a trap. Eli meets Kalinda for the first time and needs her help in an investigation.

James Thrush hands over a 'writ'. The English and Welsh courts dispensed with the term 'writ' many years ago. The correct term is a 'Claim'. In order to serve a claim under the Defamation Act 1996, the claimant (no plaintiff in England) would first have to carry out pre-action protocol. Pre-action protocol serves to settle claims that can be negotiated away before they enter the court system. If this was not carried out, the amount awarded could be reduced. See more
